The government troops and allied fighters continue to battle the remaining Islamic State fighters in a pocket south of Damascus.

Nearby towns and villages in the areas of Talbiseh and Al Hula were also evacuated, the official SANA news agency and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported.

Syrian police entered a rebel pocket between the cities of Homs and Hama on Tuesday as the last batch of opposition fighters and their families readied to evacuate the area, the SOHR reported.

The armed factions, which the government systematically refers to as "terrorists", were transferred to Idlib province, which still largely escapes regime control.

The UK-based observatory said that some 34,500 people, militants and their families, left the area as part of the deal.

Pockets of extremist militants from the Daesh terrorist group are however still thought to be active on the province's scarcely-populated far eastern edge.

The northern rural Homs deal came days after rebels cleared their last remaining strongholds around the capital Damascus.

The Syrian government, backed by Russian warplanes, has managed to liberate swathes of territory it lost following the outbreak of the crisis from the control of the terrorists.

The highway was closed in 2013, after part of the adjacent areas were under the control of the armed opposition. In February, it was that the Syrian army stumbled onto warehouses that were stacked with weapons, some of which were Israeli-made, as they were inspecting the Al Boukamal and Al Mayadin areas in Deir ez-Zor, which was liberated by the Syrian forces from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the fall of previous year.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a vicious conflict that began in 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.

In a significant victory early last month, the Syrian army managed to fully liberate Eastern Ghouta, which had always been controlled by militant groups and served as a launch pad for deadly rocket attacks against residents and civilian infrastructure in the capital.
